Default MBC on an STi

I heard that the STi restricts any boost increase when you try to raise the boost. A friend of mine just purchased the STi and I have an extra mbc so I was wondering if I could put it on his car without any problems. Thanks.

Why would the STI have a problem w/ a MBC?

Well on my wrx, the granger mbc has been great. I haven't had any problems with it. So the STi does have something that would make the STi malfunction by increasing the boost? Does anybody know how to decode that or by pass that?
